Burma's Revolution of the Spirit: The struggle for Democratic Freedom and Dignity. By Alan Clements and Leslie Kean. Foreword by His Holiness the Dalai Lama; Preface by Dr. Sein Win, Prime Minister of Burma; essay by Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi. Filled with striking documentary images and text, the book demonstrates Burma's resilience in the face of political isolation at the hands of a thirtyyear military dictatorship. 120 fourcolor photographs, 9 1/4 X 11 3/8, 112 pages. Hardcover.
"In both words and pictures this book is about as informative and graphic an introduction to the ordeal of Burma which seems to dwarf the problems of Haiti as one can imagine for a volume just over 100 pages in length. This is the kind of book that may just help to do what even the Nobel Peace Prize could not achieve finally put Burma on the West's foreign policy and human rights agenda."
The Capital Times
"With startling photographs and clear, informative text, Burma's Revolution of the Spirit reveals the beauty that the country wasand the nightmare it has become... Clements and Kean provide an unflinching portrait of a country that Xenophobic rulers have forced into the world's media shadow. Essential reading for any world traveler with curiosity and a conscience, Burma's Revolution of the Spirit pries open a window that can never again be slammed shut.
